Blackgang Chine FAQs

Here's some of the most frequently-asked questions about school visits to Blackgang Chine, posed by teachers and other group leaders

Are there any special or unusual requirements I need to know about before visiting?

Blackgang Chine is mostly outdoors, however has plenty of shelter for showery weather. Please dress according to the weather forecast and consider sun protection and hyhdration.

Are there any first aid facilities?

There is a dedicated first aid room adjacent to the main entrance. All staff are in radio contact throughout the park.

Are there any special requests or processes for group leaders on arrival?

On arrival please line up the group underneath the Giant outside the main entrance.

An adult should go to the ticket office at the far end of the gift shop to check in. Tell them you are with Education Destination (otherwise they may try to charge you for entry). Depending on how busy the park is, you may be offered time slots or usage tokens for some of the more popular rides. Negotiate these with site staff to suit the rest of your day.

How accessible is the park?

Whilst most of the main park elements are easily accessible on wide, relatively flat footpaths, there are some smaller areas that might present a problem to the less able or wheelchair users as there are some inclines in places. So long as there's plenty of able-bodied assistance this shouldn't cause too many difficulties.

How does payment work?

We will pre-book your visit for you and your entry charges will be paid directly by Education Destination. All you need to do is show up at the agreed time, line the kids up outside, identify yourselves to staff and you'll be enjoying the park in no time!

Is there anywhere on-site or nearby selling snacks, drinks or ice cream?

Yes - several cafes and kiosks

Are there any considerations regarding infection control?

Hand sanitiser stations throughout. Majority of facility is outdoors. Indoor areas may be subject to limits on capacity.

Are there any toilets on-site or nearby?

In several handy locations throughout the park - see park map

How much time should we budget for?

Blackgang Chine really is a full day activity to get the most out of the park, however some schools like to combine a trip here with a shorter activity such as a beach fossil walk or a boat trip to the Needles rocks, both nearby.

What about bad weather?

Blackgang Chine is mostly an outdoors attraction with some aspects under cover, so you will need to check the forecast and go prepared. This IS the Isle of Wight though so is one of the sunniest and driest places in the UK!

Is there space to sit and eat a packed lunch picnic?

Plenty of picnic spaces and tables throughout the park
